Disguise: our theme for 2022
The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Disguise’. We are looking for artworks that are inspired by Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro where disguise takes many forms: a dress makes a pretty girl of a soldier; a veil transforms a maid into a grand lady; darkness turns a faithful wife into an illicit lover; a title makes a gentleman of a cad. But masks and costumes are only the start of the deception in a drama where private selves must be publicly concealed, where seeming and being are never quite the same thing.
